Ubuntu :: How To Disable Auto Disk Check When Boot From CD

Jan 19, 2010

I have a custom modified Ubuntu LiveCD. Sometimes when I boot from the CD, after it detects the HDDs it starts automatically scanning and repairing them even if the partitions are windows partitions. What do I need to modify to make it not scan/repair any partitions/drives at boot?

1. How do I run check disk from an boot disk?
2. Is there something else I should consider?

Server :: Script To Run At Boot For Auto Mysql Database Check?

Oct 27, 2010

I'm running zoneminder on Ubuntu 9.10 Even with a UPS the power quite often fails enough that I need to drive over bring home the computer and run ( mysqlcheck --all-databases --auto-repair -p ) Then enter my user PW then my Mysql PW. Both are the same. How ever if it were possible to create a script that could run at start up I could get anyone to cycle the power and let it fix it's self.

Ubuntu :: Disk Check On Every Boot On Lucid?

May 26, 2010

I have updated from Karmic to Lucid not long ago, and everything went smooth and my system is been working like a charm for about a month. And it still does, with the only issue being that every time I restart my system, one of my partitions is checked.

My disk is split into 4 partitions:
sda1, NTFS for windows
sda2, ext4 for "/"
sda3, ext2 for /home
sda4, swap

Now what seems to happen is that sda3 is being marked as "not clean" on every shutdown, which makes me assume that is not being umounted at all.

I've been reading logs, commenting network drives out on fstab.. nothing does the trick.

I've booted into single mode and run e2fsck (which doesn't find anything wrong, and marks the FS as "clean") and then rebooted. The result is: if the FS wasn't mounted when I restart, then I get a clean boot once, but it is checked on the following one; if it was mounted then it is again checked at start-up.

Again, all points to the problem being that the FS is not cleanly umounted on shut-down.

I could not find any log with info of the processes killed and FS umounted at shut-down, so if anybody knows where to look, it could be a good start.

Ubuntu :: How To Stop Disk Check Every Time On Boot Up

Dec 19, 2010

Every time I boot up I have to go through a disk check and then restart, how do I stop it from happening? When the disk checks happening I press escape and it usually says its deleted inode something because it has zero Dtime or some thing similar and also a paragraph of repeated lines saying something like all system files need alsa base.cnfg it will be ignored in a future release then the disk check completes and it restarts and is fine then, also sometimes it says dev/sda5 (my ubuntu partition) was not cleanly unmounted check forces. Is their a way to stop this happening as it ends up taking ages just to login.

Ubuntu :: How To Disable Boot Time Disk Checks

Aug 1, 2011

These days I see the disk check that is popping up when my Ubuntu is booting up quite frequently. It says 'press C to cancel' but C (or Shift C or CTRL C or CTRL ALT C) does not have any effect. Pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE reboots but again ends up in the vicious loop of disk check. How to bypass it? When I need to critically enter the desktop for an urgent pressing info waiting for 20 to 25 minutes disk check is kind of difficult.

Ubuntu :: How To Disable Auto-maximize In 11.04

May 1, 2011

Just upgraded to 11.04 and this drives me nuts. When an app/window is opened, if it is "sufficiently" large, it maximizes. I use eclipse. Eclipse is a screen-space hog, however I still need to be able to see other windows and the application bar around the edge of the eclipse window. Unfortunatly Unity(?) is fighting me on this set up because every time i relaunch eclipse, it becomes maximized even if I, the user, have explicitly un-maximized it.

How can I disable this auto-maximize behavior.

Ubuntu :: Disable Auto Mount Of Partitions?

Jan 9, 2010

I just installed kubuntu 9.10 and noticed that several partitions (fat32 and ntfs) are mounted automatically after I login. I searched /etc/fstab but found no entries for those partitions. So I guess there may be something like start-up scripts that automatically detect and mount all partitions on the hard disk at boot/login. Does anybody know the location of those scripts (if any)? I want to disable that auto mount.

Ubuntu Security :: Cannot Disable Auto Login?

Jan 22, 2011

I have tried everything to disable automatic login from the login screen (gdm). I've changed my password, I've changed the settings in System -> Admin ->Login Screen, and I've edited /etc/gdm/custom.conf (gdm.conf doesn't exist, but I created it just in case!).No auto login is set up, but I can't get it to ask for my password. This is affecting my ability to switch sessions, as I can't switch sessions without clicking on my name in gdm, and because it's set to auto login,

Ubuntu :: Disable Auto Eject When Live CD Shutdown

Aug 27, 2010

Is there some file I can alter on the Live CD image that will make Ubuntu not automatically eject the drive tray when I shut down from a live CD session?


/etc/rc0.d/S89casper is a link though, so I just edited the file it points to (/etc/init.d/casper) -- seems to be working. I merge a modified "casper" at every boot, next time I build a Remastersys, I'll try to make it permanent.

Ubuntu Security :: How To Disable Apt Authentication Check

Apr 3, 2011

having a slow internet connection, I bought the all maverick repository on DVDs, copied the files on a usb drive and modified the apt sources file to consider the local repository only:


# deb file:/var/www/ubuntu_local/ ./
deb file:/var/www/maverick/dvd1/ maverick main universe restricted multiverse
deb file:/var/www/maverick/dvd2/ maverick main universe restricted multiverse
deb file:/var/www/maverick/dvd3/ maverick main universe restricted multiverse


Even though I am reasonably sure it is safe, this local repository is not authenticated and I can only install package through the command line or synaptic, the Ubuntu Software Centre giving an error message "Requires installation of untrusted packages"...I thus would like to disable the apt authentication check for this local repository.

Fedora :: Auto-disable Touchpad When Mouse Is Plugged In?

Oct 17, 2010

this issue has been bugging me for years. I want the same capability in Fedora that exists in most recent versions of Windows -- disable the touchpad on my laptop if an external mouse is plugged in. Note that my how-to is a little hardware-specific regarding the actual disabling of the touchpad; I'll discuss that more at the end of the guide.

So, here goes: For my OS (Fedora 13 x86_64) and hardware (Dell Precision M4500) - I needed a specific utility and three scripts. This Dell's trackpad and nipple-stick are seen as an 'internal' PS/2 mouse by Fedora, so I had to install 'xinput' to disable it.

Fedora :: Nautilus Viewer - Disable Image Auto Rotate?

Nov 5, 2009

I've noticed in Gnome pretty much all applications auto-rotate images when viewing, but leave the original image data intact. This may sound silly, but when I want to post pictures on, for instance, Facebook they upload as the picture was originally taken. So, if I took a picture with the camera flipped sideways it appears upright in Nautilus and the two image viewers I have installed, but when I upload the picture it appears to be flipped on its side. Does anyone know how to disable the auto-rotate when viewing feature?
